Four plead guilty to drug charges
Thursday, August 22, 2013 11:00 AM
A Madison woman was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to charges from four separate pending cases.
As part of her plea agreement, Tiara D. Turner, 19, will also spend four years on probation following her prison term.
The most serious offense Turner pleaded guilty to was distribution of a look-alike substance, a Class C felony. After a short investigation, police arrested Turner for setting up a deal with a confidential informant to buy heroin from her.
The informant twice bought the item Turner claimed was heroin, but the item never tested positive for drugs.
Turner also pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony. She was arrested in October 2012 after officers found her to be in possession of heroin during a traffic stop.
Turner also pleaded guilty to a charge of theft, a Class D felony, and battery, a Class A misdemeanor.
Scott M. VanKuren, 29, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, a Class A felony.
Police received a tip VanKuren was manufacturing meth with three other people in July 2012. He bought products used in the manufacturing process from Walmart.
VanKuren signed a plea agreement and a sentence will be decided upon Sept. 16.
Anthony J. Turner, 27, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to two charges of dealing a controlled substance, a Class B felony.
He was arrested after selling the drugs to an undercover police informant.
As part of a plea agreement, Turner will be sentenced to 16 years in prison. He will be formally sentenced on Sept. 11.
Kelly Reed, 37, was sentenced to 12 years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to drug and neglect charges.
She pleaded guilty to manufacturing meth, a Class B felony, and neglect of a dependent, a Class D felony, as part of a plea deal.
Eric Holder recently made a speech about what a waste it is to ruin people's lives by imprisoning them for drug use. Ruined lives are ruined lives and the State of Indiana is a state of ruined lives, obviously these drug charges are the crime of the century according to the police and judiciary of Indiana while Molly Dattillo, a young woman missing for many years cannot be found neither can any evidence of her disappearance be discovered by the police who are busy ruining people's lives with drug charges that are nothing more than EXTORTION made by the police, DA, and prisons, probation officers and what will these people do in prison? How will they make a living outside after felony charges remain on their record? Indiana is the stupidest state in the world.
